MEIC Ltd were awarded the role of Main Civil Construction Contractor for the Galway GWS DBO Bundle No.2  which involved the construction of 16 water treatment schemes in County Galway. There were various sites throughout County Galway, and they varied from previously developed sites to green field sites.
